Windows 2008R2 DNS freezes when changing glue record

I'm having an issue when I try to modify the Name Server tab on a Forward Lookup Zone. One of the servers listed are no longer in production. When trying to remove the server, It asks my if I want to remove the record from the Glue record and DNS immediately freezes. I'm no longer able to choose Yes or No. The only way to get through it is to use Task Manager to end the program. Because of this, the server never gets removed from the Name Server tab.

I search the internet and found a few others reporting this problem, but no work around or answer to the problem.

Anyone else run into this or found a solution to the problem?

Hmm I haven't seen this, but I only have one 2008 R2 DNS server.

You "should" be able to work-around the issue if you use DNSCMD to make the modification. Is it only the glue you're trying to kill? Or the NS record as well?
